DEBUT ALBUM: ‘SECONDHAND RAPTURE’ OUT NOW
‘Secondhand Rapture revolves around deep, thunderous rumblings, celestial twinkling, foggy shrouds, and the sweet clarity of a pastel dawn’ - Pitchfork
Following on from their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Secondhand Rapture,’ Noir-Pop New Yorkers MS MR are set to release their brand new single ‘Think of You’ on August 12th. The duo has just announced a European Tour for November including UK dates kicking off at The Shepherds Bush Empire. Tickets can be purchased right now.
A summer anthem in waiting and currently B-List at Radio 1, ‘Think Of You’ follows on from the heavily championed singles ‘Fantasy’ and ‘Hurricane’, both of which were also play listed at Radio 1 and firmly lodged at the top of the HypeM charts. The single was written and produced by the two-piece, which comprises of London-born Lizzy and Idaho native Max, with additional production and mixing by Tom Elmhirst (Back To Black, 21). A deliciously bittersweet ode to a lost and emotionally abusive relationship, ‘Think of You’ is yet another MS MR trademark mix of an ecstatic pop hook set against deeply dark lyrics that continue to win over tastemakers.
Meanwhile their acclaimed live show has seen the band perform around the world at their own headline
Shows and festival dates including their recent electric set on the John Peel Stage at Glastonbury, with Prince Harry in attendance, and their sold out show at The Electric Ballroom. The pair recently came in at an impressive 13 of the Top 20 Most Blog Artists in the World so Far in 2013. All data compiled from HypeM.
